The Institute for International and Comparative Public Law at the Faculty of Law – University of Münster is pleased to invite you to participate in our PhD Conference on Recent Challenges in International and Comparative Public Law that will take place virtually from 15-17 September 2022.

Exchange and Collaborate

With this conference, we want to bring together young researchers from different legal systems with a research interest in comparative public law or international public law. Whether your research deals with the challenges of climate change, minority rights, humanitarian issues, global terrorism or other current research topics related to our conference theme, if you are eager to discuss your thesis with other young scholars and experienced senior academic researchers, our conference is the place for you.

Our aim is not that you shall give a “traditional” paper presentation, but to intensively discuss your theses with all participants and receive important feedback from experienced colleagues with expertise in their field of study. You are also highly welcomed to use this unique opportunity to seek advice and guidance from the participants on the key issues and challenges that you experience in your research. As we connect you with your peers and senior legal scholars in your field, we hope to make you an active participant of our growing community of practice for a long lasting collaboration opportunity.

The Conference shall be your opportunity to showcase your research to participants from different jurisdictions and to connect with this international audience.


The PhD Conference is open to all PhD students as well as students who are working on their bachelor or master thesis.
